For the eighth year in a row, "Skaitmeninė statyba" continues the tradition and organizes the annual competition "Lithuanian BIM projects" aimed at selecting the best practices of the country's companies, applying Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies and methodology.

Lithuanian engineers, designers and construction companies are rapidly advancing on the digitalization path: BIM is becoming an integral part of their project implementation. Every year, an increasing number of companies applying BIM in their activities are counted, and the digital construction projects created by the country's specialists represent Lithuania on the international market as well.

"Digital data and state infrastructure management are becoming an integral part of modern engineering. Every year, the construction projects implemented in the state have more and more smart digital solutions, and the open data concept of the "buildingSMART" alliance is becoming an actual challenge for companies operating infrastructure facilities and specialists applying BIM. We are happy that the maturity level of BIM in the country is rapidly changing," says Dalius Gedvilas, president of the Lithuanian Construction Association (LCA) and chairman of the "Lithuanian BIM Projects" competition commission.

It should be noted that from 2022 March 1 legal acts on the mandatory application of BIM in public procurement came into force.

In seven years, as many as 171 applications with private and state BIM projects implemented by Lithuanian companies were submitted to the "Lithuanian BIM projects" competition.

Applications with implemented BIM projects for the competition "Lithuanian BIM projects 2023" can be submitted from 2023. February 20 until 2023 April 7
